there are pros and cons to both flighted and clipped. you know your bird and whether its safer to clip or not. i had my :senegal: clipped for safety reasons, he kept flying at the light , and hes just as happy clipped. he judges distances that he can get to and if he wants to go further he lets us know. he also steps up easier as he knows he needs us more. not keeping him clipped though, as soon as he is trained im letting him fly. just my opion and i am a parrot begginer.
